Wide-Opening Weekend activities kick off Saturday By Zach Johnson Daily News Staff Writer Wide-Opening Weekend will kick off tonight with the NASCAR Nationwide Test Laps and Horsepower Hour at the Iowa Speedway. The opening race weekend will feature multiple fan-focused events in addition to the races. The fan-focused events will include an up close look at the pre-race show, a classic arcade sponsored by Up-Down Arcade Bar in Des Moines, a mechanical bull named Piston, autograph sessions, a rock wall and a logo hunt game. There also will be a Monster Energy Jump Show, which will feature talent that has performed across the world using motorcycles, four-wheelers and snow mobiles. “Everything you have seen on the X-Games will be what your going to experience during this jump show,” Monster motorcyclist Heath Frisby said. “These guys have performed across the world doing what they love.” This jump show was unique to Frisby, but his passion for anything with a motor in it, and he said he is excited about the event. “It’s a very unique event for us to perform at NASCAR races,” Frisby said. “It’s truly an honor to perform for the fans of NASCAR and Iowa Speedway.” After the race on Saturday, Montgomery Gentry will take the stage for a post-race concert. The country music duo is made up of Troy Gentry and Eddie Montgomery. The duo has sold millions of albums, sold out shows and have won multiple awards since the group burst onto the scene in 1999. The group’s claim to fame has been singing for the blue collar workers as described on the website of Montgomery Gentry. The fan-focused events will kick off on Saturday and finish up on Sunday.

Delinquent ambulance service fees on council agenda for Monday

4

Zach Johnson/Daily News NASCAR NEXT Drivers Gray Gaulding, Dylan Kwasniewski and Brandon McReynolds signed autographs for the students of Aurora Heights elementary school’s PTA Fun Night. The theme of the fun night was Sock Hop. Students danced to classic ’60s music, and the event had a “best” dressed and multiple hula hoop contests. The fun night also had a silent auction where each of the classes made an auction grab bag.

The Newton City Council meeting Monday might will include a second consideration of adding the delinquent ambulance service fees. The first consideration was presented at the May 5 council meeting. Newton Fire Department Chief Jarrod Wellik stated that the additional delinquent ambulance service fees of 25 percent are currently coming out of the fire department budget and the delinquent fees will save the department money. The first consideration passed unanimously. COUNCIL See Page 5A

Write On

Five things to do outside A few weeks ago, I was just getting into the swing of spring and all it’s sunshine, but the last few weeks haven’t been the loveliest outdoor weather. It seems like it should be a little warmer by this time of year, but I’m not complaining — sun is just around the corner. Soon, it will be warm, sunny and hopefully not too humid. Since it’s not quite 100 degrees outside yet, savor the beginning of summer while you can. Here are five things to do outside this summer: 1. Walk — Since the By Kate Malott weather forecast says next week is going to be Daily News Staff Writer in the mid- to high-60s, there’s no better walking weather than that. Nothing is more simple, beautiful and pleasant than walking along a path with blue skies above and green grass below. Take a walk in your neighborhood or another neighborhood in town. There are many pathways and trails in Newton, like the one by the stadium or at the arboretum. If you’re feeling adventurous, there are many beautiful places to take a walk in the great outdoors, like Mariposa Park or the Jacob Krumm Nature Preserve. 2. Golf — Iowa is blessed with rolling hills, and for myself, there’s no better sight on a early evening in summer than my feet on bright green grass as far as the eye can see and the sun setting off to the west. If you know how to golf, then lucky you. You can truly appreciate this being on the list, but if you’re not that good, than it’s still a sport I recommend. I grew up at Westwood Golf Course, and it’s a place of fond memories with family and friends. I still know every hill, tree and water hazard on the course. If you haven’t played in awhile, dust off the clubs and go out one weekend or evening after work. You’ll be glad you did. If you’re new to the game, just hitting the practice range is a good time. Besides, it’s a lot less expensive. 3. Disc Golf — If you like the idea of golfing but need to settle for a different activity, then disc golf is the sport for you. It’s much cheaper than golf, and it’s still as challenging. I discovered the leisure sport of disc golf after living in Ames, but something I never knew growing up was that Newton has two of the most terrific disc golf courses in the state at Maytag Park and Woodland Park, both of which well-respected among avid disc golfers. 4. Grill — Steaks. Chicken. Hamburgers. Corn. Kabobs. If you don’t have a grill at home, then you should get one, but even then, you can grill in many city and state parks. Whether you’re on the patio, deck or yard, grilling is the best way to prepare food, especially with friends or family. You can not only have the best meal of the week, but also the best time just visiting as well. 5. Spectate — Sometimes just being outdoors is half the fun, so why not just watch other people do all the work? There are many opportunities to watch spectator sports, such as soccer, softball or baseball. Going to an Iowa Cubs game at Principal Park is always a fun time, but so is going to a high school baseball or softball game. Supporting the Cardinals is a lot of fun, especially when the game is close. You can take the family and share some popcorn and cheer on the big hits or outs because those kids really give it their all.

Usual Eccentric

Kevin Steen and Me

Life is funny and we choose the people we admire. A lot of people put stock in A-list celebrities, sports stars and talentless hacks that somehow get reality shows. But for the last four years I have admired a man that only a small subculture of humanity is even aware of. His name is Kevin Steen. Steen is an independent professional wrestler who weighs in at 240 pounds, is billed from Marieville, Q u e b e c , By Will E. Sanders Creators Syndicate Canada, and has a body type that best resembles a panda bear. As a showing of support I own a number of Steen’s wrestling shirts and I talk about him more to my wife than I do important household decisions. I am not one to get star-struck. Through my career I have had the opportunity to meet so-called famous individuals and the encounters have meant little to nothing to me. Yet secretly, I have always wanted to shake Steen’s hand. Why do I place so much merit in the likes of a French-Canadian professional wrestler? To me, Steen speaks to my inner-introvert and he appeals to my most basic nature and instinct — nay, he is an embodiment of it. I vicariously live through him, not because I lead a shallow life devoid of joy. It’s mostly because I can’t go around giving people I disagree with a

piledriver through a table. I ran into Steen once before with less than stellar results. Our paths crossed at a wrestling show two years back. I was headed back from the can in the bowels of Hara Arena after a few outrageously over-priced beverages when the chance encounter took place. Suddenly, Steen rounded the corner and we awkwardly walked toward one another in an otherwise vacant hallway. My heart went aflutter like a school girl in love. As we passed I sheepishly turned my gaze away. Yet secretly, I wished nothing more than to shake the man’s hand. I felt like I needed to offer some rudimentary showing of gratitude for not only what he does, but also how he — in a way too long to explain — has helped me profoundly. I vowed that day if ever afforded a similar situation I would not be so cowardly. On most nights Steen is package-piledriving opponents up and down the eastern and western seaboard, but one night last month he was at a show in the palatial urban paradise that is Dayton, Ohio. I told my wife, Christine, that I was going to try and get my picture taken with him at the show. But I asked her to hold me to it as I am apt to buckling under pressure and chickening out. As my wife, Chris-Steen (as I call her) is exposed to an unhealthy amount of professional wrestling. I call it secondhand wrestling, which is like secondhand smoking only it doesn’t kill a person as quickly. She, too, wanted her picture taken with him. Leading up to the fateful en-

counter I was adamant about trying to meet Steen, a sentiment that eluded me the moment I spotted him at the show. He was manning an autograph table next to a fellow professional wrestler, Chris Hero (who ironically graduated the same year I did from my high school’s football rival, Northmont). It was $10 to get one photo with Steen, and since Chris-Steen and I had nobody there with us, we could not get our picture taken with him together. So, I plopped $20 on the table for two pictures, one for her and one for me. Because Steen is such a nice guy, he refused to charge us $20, made change, and handed me back $10. I promptly and ever-so-politely told him I could not accept the money back and insisted he keep it. Partly because that’s how he makes a living for his family, and partly because of the guilt I feel for occasionally watching bootlegged copies of wrestling events. So I threw my arms around him like I was hanging on for dear life, smiled and gave a thumbs up. I was so nervous that I don’t remember any more of the encounter, which is why I am elated that I have photographic evidence of the monumental occasion. Despite the fact that I forgot to shake his hand and thank him for what he does for a living. Contact Will E. Sanders email him at wille@willesanders.com. To learn more about Will E.

Letters to the Editor

Thank you, contributors to Newton High School Body Shop To the editor: As the school year draws to a close, I would like to publicly thank everyone who has continued to help make The Body Shop a success at Newton Senior High School. The Body Shop is a place where students can get personal care items, such as  shampoo, deodorant, lotion, lip balm, razors and laundry soap — free of charge. The girls’ swimming team got the ball rolling in the fall with a team builder activity that stocked our shelves, and then we received sizable monetary/product donations from the Newton Community Educational Foundation,

Theisen’s, the Elks Club, Hy-Vee, and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. In addition, there are a number of community members who continue to think of us and donate products. Retired guidance counselor Trudy Shirley, and substitute teacher, Jill Clapper, are strong supporters of our mission. Thanks also to the NHS Alumni News for a write up on our program.  If you think teenagers today are not grateful or gracious, I’m here to tell you that I hear a “thank you” almost every single day.  Our mission continues to be “helping students be successful one product at a time,” and The Body Shop would like to thank the community for the continued support.   Sarah Patterson Newton

Notable Newtonians

Race Continued from Page 1A

Zach Johnson/Daily News Dr. Tom Hoover (left) gave an E-Walking Tour of the history of Newton at Uncle Nancy’s Coffeehouse on Thursday night. Hoover covered the history of Maytag and the multiple washing machine companies that called Newton home. He shared history of the Maytag, Woodrow and Snyder families as well as many other notable Newtonians. Hoover is currently working on a book on the history of Newton that is set to go to a publisher in a couple of months.

Fabric Closet Continued from Page 8A got to finish it,” Halie chimed in. “It was really cool because I’m finishing a project that someone else did, and I got to be creative with it.” Eden, who transferred to NHS during the second semester after moving from Canada, is also a big fan of the Closet. “I’ve been sewing since I was a baby,” Eden said. “I used to make clothes for my dolls, and I thought that I would never learn how to use a pattern, and I thought Ms. Thomas could help me with that. It’s pretty useful having (the Closet) because you can go in, get your fabric and start your project.” During the interview, Eden was actually wearing a pair of leggings she had made while in the class and both she and Jasmine made their graduation dresses from materials inside of the Closet. “I think Ms. Thomas is a pretty great teacher,” Eden said. “Yeah, she’s awesome,” Halie added.

Council Continued from Page 1A The council meeting also will feature three presentations, including a Thunder Nites update from Thunder Nites Executive Director Libby Marshall, minimum housing rental code from Newton Fire Department Fire Marshall Mike Knoll, and streets and paving from Newton Public Works Director Keith Laube.

“She’s very helpful,” Jasmine added to the chorus of praise. “Sometimes, when we do our projects and some of patterns don’t have all the pieces to it, she’ll have to make another pattern for it just so we can use it for our project.” Thomas loves seeing her students enjoy sewing and learning a valuable life skill and would like to see it continue. There is never enough money in the budget to supply the sewing program she said, they will gladly accept any excess fabric people have or gift cards to stores where they can purchase sewing supplies. “Some students will have the money for all of their projects, some students will have money for one project and will need fabric for more projects and some students will have no money for projects,”Thomas said. “So the Fabric Closet is to met those needs for those students who need fabric.” Senior staff writer Ty Rushing may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 426, or at trushing@newtondailynews.com.

Also on the agenda: • A resolution approving a 2 percent salary increase for Newton City Administrator Bob Knable. • A resolution to renew the legal service agreement with Brick Gentry. • A resolution approving the purchase of real estate for the Newton D&D Program. The properties include 625 E. Fifth St. S. and 1022 S. Fifth Ave. E. A resolution directing the sale

of General Obligation Bonds, Taxable Series 2014 A&B. • A resolution approving the appeal and granting waiver from the adopted Newton Site Plan Code for driveway approach and other improvements within the city right-of-way for Van Maanen Electric located 627 North 19th Avenue East.

When Sunday rolls around, the starting positions for the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Get To Know Newton 250 will be set. The drivers will go to the Newton track in the morning, be introduced to the Speedway crowd at 12:30 p.m. Then it will be “start your engines” for the 1 p.m. race, which will be televised live on ESPN. Iowa Speedway also has been a great place for young driver’s to taste victory at the NASCAR level. Six drivers in Sunday’s field have won a NASCAR race at Iowa Speedway: Chase Elliott (K&N Pro Series East), Dylan Kwasniewski (K&N Pro Series East), Ryan Blaney (NCWTS), James Buescher (NCWTS), Trevor Bayne (NNS) and Elliott Sadler (NNS). Elliott has a one-point lead over secondplace Elliott Sadler and is just three points up on third-place Regan Smith. Though Elliott has a NASCAR K&N East win at Iowa, this weekend will be his NNS debut at the track. Sadler has three Coors Light Poles, one win and six top 10s, in six starts at Iowa. Smith has made two starts at Iowa, posting one top 10, but has an average finish of 9.0. Bayne is fourth in this year’s standings coming into Sunday’s Get To Know Newton 250. Bayne posted a Nationwide win here last June. In five races at Iowa Speedway, Bayne has a pole position start, a win, two top 5 and three top 10 finishes. Blaney, who already has two truck series and one NASCAR Nationwide Series wins on his resume, will be joining teammates Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano in the field for Friday night’s race at Charlotte before racing in the Get To Know Newton 250. Blaney was the youngest winner to win a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race when he crossed the finish line first at Iowa Speedway in 2012. He made his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut last Saturday at Kansas, finishing 27th. Staff writer Jocelyn Sheets may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 432, or at jsheets@newtondailynews.com.

Exercise floor show detracts from visits with relatives DEAR ABBY: When my husband and I go to visit my mother (in another city) every other month or so, my brother and his wife insist on coming over to see us while we’re there. Our visits usually last two or three days. Many times when they come over, my sister-in-law will start doing her exercise routine, including floor exercises, which are, in my husband’s and my opinion, unbecoming and inappropriate to do in front of other people. How do we deal with this? Are we crazy to feel awkward when she’s lying on her back doing these pelvic thrusts? Would it be out of line to ask her NOT to do this in the future? My brother says, “She won’t listen to me, so it wouldn’t do any good to talk to her,” so we know talking to her won’t help. What do you suggest? — FEELING AWKWARD DEAR FEELING AWKWARD: Here’s how I’d handle it. Talk to her anyway, and ask her to please refrain from doing these exercises in your presence because it makes you uncomfortable. But if that doesn’t work and she starts “performing,” stand up and say, “Hey, folks. Let’s go out for a walk (or coffee, or a sandwich),” and put an end to her bid for attention that way. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend will have “scheduled” sex with me — only after he has had his shower in the evening or in the morning. Every once in a while I get lucky and am able to stop by after work and have a quickie. It’s driving me crazy. I have tried many ways to get him to have sex spontaneously, but he won’t budge. It’s starting to be a turn-off because it’s not the “right time.” What do I do? — LOOSER THAN THAT IN DETROIT DEAR LOOSER: Your boyfriend may have a touch of OCD, or need to

feel “in control” when he has sex. In other words, if the encounter is not his idea and at the time he chooses, he doesn’t get turned on. There’s help for him if he’s willing to admit there “may” be a problem. But if he isn’t, then find yourself another fella because nothing is likely to change. DEAR ABBY: My sister-in-law is being married in September. I am in the wedding. My wife and I are having a baby in June, but the bride does not want to include my new baby. I think she is concerned people will pay attention to the baby and not her. Many distant relatives will attend and this may be the only time they will see my son. She plans to invite more than 200 people. Am I right to be upset that my son, her nephew, is not invited? — JOHN DOE IN PLANO, TEXAS DEAR JOHN DOE: I don’t think so. It’s the bride’s day, and you should abide by her wishes without complaining. If she prefers not to have her wedding disrupted by an infant who needs feeding or changing, it’s her choice. Because you want to show off your new baby, bring along pictures and pass them around. I’m sure the relatives will be thrilled to see them.

By Ty Rushing Daily News Senior Staff Writer The “Fabric Closest” at Newton Senior High School has become the go-to place for students who enjoy expressing their creativity with a needle and thread or by using a sewing machine. NHS Family and Consumer Science (home economics) teacher Bev Thomas explained how the Closet came to be. “The strategy of teaching sewing has taken on a new look. Many of the students have family members who have never sewn and do not have a sewing machine at home,” Thomas said. “Their experience of going to the fabric store or to a fabric department is very limited. “This has led to creating a ‘Fabric Closet’ for the Family and Consumer Science students. Through shopping at garage sales, estate sales, donation from others and purchasing fabric personally, the Fabric Closet was born.” Seniors Eden Nelson and Jasmine Woods and

Ty Rushing/Daily News Newton Senior High School students Halie Owens, Eden Nelson and Jasmine Woods showcase the “Fabric Closest” with their teacher Bev Thomas. Thomas teachers family and consumer sciences at NHS and plays an instrumental part in keeping the Closet going.

junior Halie Owens talked about why they enjoy using the Fabric Closet and why it’s important to them. “It’s really great when you need a different project and there’s like all kinds of different fabrics,” Halie said. “If you go to the store, you won’t find the same fabric …

and it’s kind of cool.” Jasmine agreed that having access to the closest was extremely helpful and that it saves them so much time on finding fabrics since they don’t have to travel to find the type of fabrics they need for their projects. “We’ve made dresses, we’ve made rag blankets,”

Jasmine said as she began to list some of their projects. “I made a bag and it was really cool, because someone had started a project, so it was quilted together but it wasn’t completely finished, and I FABRIC CLOSET See Page 5A

Rookie Chase Elliott leads Nationwide Series coming into Iowa Speedway By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — What a difference a year makes. This time last year, Chase Elliott was just “one of the kids” working his way up the NASCAR ladder. Sure, he was named one of NASCAR Next, showing his growth as a professional race driver. But, Elliott was only 17, which meant he was restricted to competing only on the shorter tracks in NASCAR events. He was making strides in his limited NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. Elliott comes into Sunday’s Iowa Speedway Get To Know Newton 250 as the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series leader. It is Elliott’s first Nationwide start at Iowa Speedway, a place he has won while competing in the K&N Pro Series East. Elliott has a one-point lead over second-place Elliott Sadler and is just three points up on third-place Regan Smith. “Everything has been decent so far, and there’s a lot of room for improvement,” Elliott said of his start to the 2014 season. He and his team were in Newton on May 6 for track testing. “There are a lot of aspects of it we need to be better at. I thought we were bet-

ter at Richmond than a lot places we’ve run this year, including the two places we won.

NASCAR Next’s only female aiming to make her own name By Ben Schuff Daily News Sports Writer NEWTON — One could hear the enthusiasm in Kenzie Ruston’s voice. For a brief moment, her tone flucuated, emitting excitment. The second-year NASCAR K&N Pro Series driver spoke of being named to the NASCAR Next program for the second straight season and her experiences since then. “We got to do so many cool things,” she said, emphasizing every

few words. “They take us to Chicago and we get to hang out with all the Chase drivers when they make the Chase Ruston [for the Sprint Cup] and we get to go to Miami and we RUSTON See Page 3B

Gifford pulling double duty this weekend at Iowa Speedway By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — All race car drivers want as much time behind the wheel on a track and in a race as possible. Ryan Gifford will be on the 7/8-mile oval track of Iowa Speedway plenty this weekend. The 25-year-old Winchester, Tenn., native draws double duty during the Speedway’s 2014 season opener. Gifford has done it here once before.

second at Richmond. In the nine races this season, Elliott has posted seven top-10 finishes and hasn’t finished lower than 19th. Elliott said he is hoping to have worked out some of the rough spots the team was experiencing during the week off coming into Iowa.

“I’m hoping to be able to win here at Iowa,” he said while standing in the Iowa Speedway garage during the May 6 testing. “It is the same Iowa Speedway track. I really didn’t see much difference in it than when I was here last year driving the truck race. I’m looking forward racing here in less than two weeks.” Elliott is the son 1988 NASCAR champion Bill Elliott. He is comfortable and confident in the racing world. The Sunoco Rookie takes the level of competition in stride as he forges his own path in NASCAR. “The competition level is the big difference from trucks to the Nationwide Series. All the teams are capable of winning at this level. You just strive to be a little better than the next guy,” Elliott said. And this weekend is the 18-yearold Elliott’s high school graduation. Elliott graduates from his Georgia high school Saturday morning before flying back to Iowa to participate in the Get To Know Newton 250 Sunday. “Iowa (Speedway) has a cool atmosphere to race in. The track keeps adding character. This is a great short track to race on. We drivers love it because its a good size to really put on great shows, which will bring more people to the races,” Elliott said.

NASCAR ownership building on Iowa Speedway potential, CEO says By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Potential is a word used quite a bit by NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France when discussing Iowa Speedway. “It is an established venue in a NASCAR-rich fan region. They’ve had a lot of success at Iowa Speedway over the years. We’ve always liked the facility and recognized its potential for motorsports and nonmotorsports events,” France told the Daily News in a telephone interview Thursday. NASCAR purchased Iowa Speedway in 2013 through a wholly-owned subsidiary named Iowa Speedway LLC. The state-of-the-art 0.875-mile asphalt paved tri-oval race track and motorsports facility was designed by NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace. Iowa Speedway has produced actionpacked, competitive racing in its history of hosting NASCAR Nationwide Series races. In eight series races, the speedway has produced five different winners and five Coors Light Pole winners. “We’re excited about being in Newton and in Iowa, in general. We’re also all excited about this weekend. The staff we have in place at Iowa Speedway has worked hard over the past six months getting ready for this weekend,” France said. France talked to media the week after the formal announcement of NASCAR’s purchase of Iowa Speedway in early De-

Newton athletes qualify for state in seven events By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Newton’s Sarah Kalkhoff, on a better day to throw than Thursday, won a 4A district championship and a trip to state in the discus.

MARSHALLTOWN — Under typical springlike weather — or at least this spring — Newton Cardinal track athletes did the work at Thursday’s Class 4A state qualifying track meet in Marshalltown. The Newton girls had automatic qualifications in five events and the Cardinals boys had two automatic qualifications. Juniors Sarah Kalkhoff and Deonne Harris left no doubt they were headed to next week’s Iowa state track meet at Drake University. They won district championships. The top two finishers in each event earn automatic state meet berths. Newton has several athletes waiting in the wings to see if their times or marks were strong enough to be at-large qualifiers. The state associations will

release the full list of state meet qualifers later today. Kalkhoff won the girls’ discus with a throw of 125 feet, 7 inches. Harris was never challenged in the 110-meter high hurdles, winning in 14.94 seconds. Harris also anchored the boys’ 4x110-meter shuttle hurdle relay team to second place. Harris, Levi Michener, J.T. Thongvanh and Jarom Williams had a seasonbest 1 minute, .32 seconds. Newton’s Grace Coen ran second in both the 3,000 meters (11:02.03) and the 1,500 meters (4:54.01) to qualify for state. Anna Barr finished second in the 400-meter hurdles, 1:10.66. Coen combined with Amber Karston, Leela Spencer and Sydney Jenkins for second in the distance medley relay in 4:24.20. A full report will be in Monday’s Daily News.

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Newton’s Deonne Harris enjoys the moment Thursday at Marshalltown. Harris won the Class 4A district championship in the 110-meter high hurdles and punched his ticket to the 2014 Iowa state track meet next week in Des Moines.

Newton girls nail down win NEWTON — Defense continues to be a mainstay for the Class 2A 11th-ranked Newton Cardinal girls. Newton’s girls improved to 10-1 on the soccer field with a 2-0 victory over visiting Marshalltown Thursday at H.A. Lynn Stadium. The Cardinals scored twice in the first half and that’s all they needed. Goalkeeper Emily Forsyth denied the Bobcats shot after shot, amassing 11 saves. “Our defense had another great game, Michaela ( Jacobsen) especially,” said Cathy Reiter, Newton head coach. With new people in the back, Michaela has really stepped up. She is not only playing really well herself, but she is communicating so well to the rest of our defense and being a huge leader for us. Emily saw a lot of action and made some really good saves.” Taylor Moon scored 11 min-

utes into the game. Reiter said Ryanne Rausch broke away down the field, then played a perfect slotted ball across the goal that Moon kicked in. Rausch was at the right place and the right time for the second goal nine minutes later. Reiter said Hannah Rhoads played a ball into the box that the Bobat goalie misjudged. The ball bounced over the goalie’s head and a defender was there , Rausch had followed the ball and was able to win it and score. Newton’s soccer team was missing players, who also compete for the NHS track team, Thursday. The track athletes were at the state qualifying meet. “With three track starters being gone, other girls really stepped up and did their jobs on the field,” Reiter said. “It was a great team win for us.” (Ben Schuff/Daily News) The Cardinals play at Adel- Newton sophomore Hannah Rhoads fights off an opponent for a loose ball during Newton’s game against the Bobcats Thursday night at H.A.

Thunder advance to Western Conference Finals LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mr. Unreliable was rock-solid and relentless yet again. Kevin Durant’s reward is another trip to the Western Conference finals with the Oklahoma City Thunder. The league MVP made the most foolish headline in recent newspaper history look even worse Thursday night with a spectacular 39-point performance, propelling the Thunder into a matchup with the San Antonio Spurs for a spot in the NBA finals. While Russell Westbrook struggled and Oklahoma City’s role players foundered, Durant carried his teammates through Game

6 against the Los Angeles Clippers. Durant accounted for nearly half of their points with buckets or assists as the Thunder finally finished off their mentally exhausted secondround opponents, 10498. Durant also had a season-high 16 rebounds, and he might have to do even more when the Thunder visit San Antonio for Game 1 on Monday night. He’s confident Oklahoma City is capable of getting past the West’s No. 1 seeds with teamwork sprouting from years of playoff runs. “Experience has helped us out a lot, just being with each other for so long,” Durant said. “We’ve got

a long ways to go. We definitely can get better. This is definitely a series that pushed us to the brink. We were in a tough spot. We stayed together and persevered.” When the Thunder were down by 16 points and struggling to make any shot early in Game 6, they looked all but ready to fold up and head home for a seriesdeciding finale. Instead, Westbrook overcame a slow start to finish with 19 points and 12 assists as the Thunder reached the conference finals for the third time in four years, closing out Los Angeles with two straight wins. Two days after the Thunder erased a late

13-point deficit to win Game 5, the Thunder rallied from that early deficit and maintained their lead throughout the fourth quarter, shaking off any memories of their Game 4 collapse on the same Staples Center court. “I thought tonight’s game was something that we’ve done all year,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “We’ve all stuck together and found ways to win.” Durant hit five 3-pointers and Reggie Jackson added 14 points for Oklahoma City, which will face the Spurs in a rematch of the West’s last two champions. The Thunder eliminated San Antonio in six games.

Ruston: Making her mark in a sport she enjoys competing is important Continued from Page 1B get to do so many things that you usually don’t get to do if you’re not in the NASCAR Next program.” Ruston returns to Iowa Speedway this weekend with the rest of the K&N Pro Series drivers for Saturday night’s Casey’s General Stores 150. It’s a return visit for the El Reno, Okla., native to the announcement site of her first NASCAR Next class in 2013. The NASCAR Next program is an inititive that highlights drivers those within NASCAR believe will be the future of the sport. “This year, I was really excited again, but the first year was — I was just jumping up and down, I was so excited,” Ruston said, who was named to this year’s Next class on April 25 “When I moved up to the K&N Series, it was one of those things that I really wanted to be a part of that program, so it was really cool to be named and [be] the first female to ever be named to the program.” Rustin earned a few other historically significant achievements throughout her first K&N Pro Series season. Her third-place finish at Greenville Pickens Speedway in South Carolina last April was the highest ever by a female driver. At season’s end, she placed sixth in the K&N Pro Series Points Standings, also the best ever by a female.

While the 22-year-old takes pride in her accomplishments marked with the “female” prefix, she views them as more of a green flag than a checkered flag. “It’s really cool to be the first female to do all these things [but] ... Are those my favorite moments in racing? No,” she said. “When I’m out on the race track, I don’t want the guys to race me any different because I’m a girl. I don’t feel like they should. I feel like I get in the car and I work just as

hard as them week in and week out to achieve my goals in racing.” Ruston threw out a couple of names when discussing the route she’d like to see her career take. One, Danica Patrick, is one she knows she’ll be inevitbally compared to, and the other is someone she’s gunning for. “I’m not out there to be the first woman to do stuff. I’m just out there to be the best I can be and win championships and hopefully be the next

Jimmie Johnson. I’m not out there to be better than Danica. I’m not out there to be better than anybody else. I just want to be the best I can be and if that’s better than Danica [or] that’s not quite Jimmie Johnson, it’s whatever,” she said. “I just want to go out and be competitive every week and be in the top five and win races and win poles and wins championships and that’s what I’m out there for.”

Gifford: Young driver working hard to move up levels in NASCAR competition Continued from Page 1B Stores 150, then turns around on Sunday to drive the No. 98 Biagi-DenBeste Racing entry in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series Get To Know Newton 250. Gifford knows Newton. He made his Nationwide Series debut here last August, rallying from a 23rd-place starting spot to post a top-10 finish in his first start in the No. 33 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing. “I’m excited to back at Iowa Speedway. I learned a lot last year here. I learned how to drive the track in a Nationwide car,” Gifford said Thursday. “Yes, I drove both races (K&N and Nationwide) last year when I was here. It’s not as tough as you might think. I just have to make sure I get hydrated following Saturday night’s race, get some sleep and be ready to go on Sunday.” Last August following his debut Nationwide Series race at Iowa, Gifford said, “I’m just super pumped,” said Gifford following the race. “I feel like I learned more in these past 250 laps in a race car than I have in a long time. These Nationwide cars are so much fun to drive and difficult too; I mean you really have to be on your toes. I can’t thank Drive for Diversity and Menards enough for putting me in this race.” “Man, I wish I could go back out here and run some more, it’s so much fun. It was cool having this opportunity and the RCR crew kept working with me and I just tried to drive the wheels off it and we finished all the laps and got a top-10 finish,” Gifford said of his first taste of Nationwide racing. Even though Gifford has joined Biagi-DenBeste Racing in 2014, he admitted he is still pumped about getting opportunities to step up into the Nationwide Series racing. Gifford was named to the 2014 NASCAR Next group, which is his second straight year on the young up-and-coming drivers. “It’s such huge honor to be recognized. You work hard to get to this point and it’s exciting to be named as one of the top young drivers coming up,”

France: Fan experience important part of sport Continued from Page 1B wasn’t right for them, but the time was right for us. So, from a NASCAR standpoint, we’ll get to give some stability to a facility that needs that, number one,” France said. France reached out and named 28-yearold Jimmy Small as president of Iowa Speedway. “Jimmy is energetic and a very quick study. He fits in well with Iowa Speedway and the community of Newton. He is a good community ambassador for our sport,” France said. “We are about taking care of the race fans and making sure they have a great experience at every NASCAR event.” Growing the fan base of motorsports, and NASCAR specifically is important to France and his organization. He said Iowa Speedway has always had a great fan base. Fan-focused initiatives have been developed by Small and his staff at Iowa Speedway, France said. “NASCAR can expand things at a faster clip than past ownership groups. They did a lot of things right here over the years. We’re just building on that to provide a great place to experience motorsports and non-motorsports events,” France said. “The Newton community and racing fans across the state of Iowa have supported Iowa Speedway from the beginning. We’re excited to be part of that community.”

Gifford said. Gifford’s first focus of the weekend is the K&N Pro Series East-West crossover event — the Casey’s General Stores 150 on Saturday night. “I’m comfortable in the K&N races. I know the car well. The K&N Series is very competitive. We’re all striving to prove ourselves to be able to move up to the next level,” Gifford said. “But, the Nationwide Series is super competitive with really talented drivers, young and veterans and even some of the (Sprint) Cup drivers running in the races.” Transitioning from the K&N car to a Nationwide car is still new for Gifford. He said there are differences in how to drive at the two different levels. He pointed out that the Nationwide cars run on different tires than his K&N car.

“I learned in the Nationwide Series races you’ve really got to race hard on restarts becasue the tires don’t really fall off as much as our cars do. Being back at Iowa, is really fun for me. It’s a great track and has great racing fans,” Gifford said. Gifford became the first African-American in K&N series history to earn a pole when he accomplished the feat in the inaugural race at Martinsville in 2010. He scored his first K&N Pro Series win last season at Richmond. So, on Saturday night in the Casey’s General Stores 150 look for Gifford in the Rev Racing No. 2 Toyota with the K&N Pro Series drivers compete under the lights at Iowa Speedway. Sunday afternoon, Gifford is in the Biagi-DenBeste Racing No. 98 Fordaentry in the Get To Know Newton 250.

Astrograph Friday, May 16, 2014

If the forward-reaching Sagittarius moon is still not enough to create the momentum you need, at least it will inspire you to investigate, gather more information and lay the groundwork for later. Mars is still retrograde, but after the weekend, this changes and it’s “game on.” Start packing your bags for the adventure. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 16). You will be better tuned in to your body in the next four weeks, and as a result, you’ll enjoy a boost to your health. A research project or mission ties you to distant prospects in June. You’ll be signing papers atop a highrise in August. So much attention and affection will come your way in September that it may actually be hard to bear. Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 18, 44, 37 and 11. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Media can be misleading. You’re too savvy to let some Hollywood representation of events hype your expectations or

play into your fears about what will happen. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Too often you carry more than necessary. Carry only what you’ll need today. Better yet, carry only what you’ll need this hour. By refusing to lug around future worries, you’ll stay light and effective. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A good outcome depends on not only knowing what you’re trying to do before you do it, but also knowing why. If your “why” is solid, everything else will fall into place. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s someone you still need to forgive if you are to live and love freely. You don’t have to make a formal thing out of it. An internal acknowledgment may be enough to get unstuck. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t let insecurity get the better of you and make you believe that it will take some grand gesture to impress. The small things you do to

show you care are the ones that will make the deepest impression. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Make a list of five things you could do to move forward, and execute it. Even if they are the wrong five things, you still will progress and learn enough to choose a more effective list tomorrow. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). While it’s true that most people are attracted to looks, money and power, the thing that makes you most attractive is what you contribute other than your looks, money and power. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Wary of new people, you’ll meet someone who causes you to drop your guard. You’ll be sold on the small things you have in common — a song you both like, a story that connects or a similar circumstance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). The thing that will make you better in business will also make

you better as a person. That said, it will be work — and not the kind you enjoy, either. Worthwhile work, but work. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You admire those gifted conversationalists who can actually keep up with you, though they may be few and far between now. There will be a benefit to trying to include and engage those outside your circle. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll do more with less. The frugal choice will be the wise one, but you’ll have to be decisive and act quickly. One positive change will continue to make sense for years to come. ARIES (March 21-April 19). When only half of the marching band is playing the right notes, it still sounds more or less like music. There’s a lot wrong with the large organization in today’s dealings, but the overall effect should still work. COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM
